  • 150ml pot fat-free natural yogurt
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • few shakes green Tabasco sauce
  • snipped chives, to serve


  1. In a food processor or blender, blitz all the ingredients, reserving half the mint and yogurt, until smooth. Add a little extra vinegar, Tabasco and seasoning to taste, then add a splash of water if you like it thinner.

  2. Chill until very cold, then serve with a dollop more yogurt, mint, chives and a few ice cubes if you like. The soup will keep in the fridge for 2 days – just give it a good stir before serving.

This was really tasty! I don't share other readers' feelings that it's too garlicky. Smooth, refreshing and very moreish. I'll be making this again.

Nice soup, but as a previous commenter said, it's too garlicky (and I am a big garlic fan usually) and it needs plenty of salt and pepper to bring it to life. I think white pepper would be better, although i used ground black pepper this time. I will definitely use only one clove of garlic next time. I added water to thin it down as suggested but that made it taste too watery. Next time I will add double the quantity of yoghurt instead of any water.

Delicious. I don't like mint so used basil instead

absolutely delicious! quite garlicky though, next time i'll only use one clove. and it needs a fair bit of salt to lift the flavours.
